Tea with Queenie

Very moving tragic-comic piece for three people, including tea and cake

This tiny-audienced show (Queenie can take a maximum of three for tea) takes you right into the messy home and mindset of an old lady who lives by herself. There’s no getting away, no matter how uncomfortable she makes you. Although it could benefit from a dramaturg, this is a very moving tragic-comic piece, with some very decent cake.

Greenside, 557 2124, until 27 Aug (not 21 & 22), 3.30pm, £6.50 (£5).
